Employee contributions are "deducted" by the University from the employee's gross pay and paid directly to the retirement systems, thereby enabling employees to defer current federal and state taxes on this income.

Members of the STRS, OPERS, or ARP who leave University employment may withdraw their retirement contributions. The University’s contributions are vested after five years. This means that if the contributions are left on deposit, STRS or OPERS members will receive a pension at retirement age. For ARP members, vesting is immediate.
